Many people choose the Lake Austin area for the Eanes Independent School District. The Eanes District includes homes along the south side of Lake Austin from just west of central Austin all the way westward to approximately just west of Commons Ford Road. This same span is zoned for Eanes all the way south to approximately Barton Creek, which includes the southern tributaries to Lake Austin. It also includes some homes east of MoPac toward that portion of Barton Creek.
Aqua Verde, Davenport West, Lakeshore, Lakeplace, the Point at Rob Roy, Rockcliff Estates, and Windy Cove are some of the Lake Austin neighborhoods that are zoned for Eanes ISD.
Of note is a small section of homes south of the lake and in the MoPac area. This region is not zoned for Eanes but rather for Austin ISD. This includes homes near Lake Austin Boulevard, Redbud Trail, and Stratford Drive.
Lake Shore is a predominant Eanes neighborhood on Lake Austin, and spans along the well-known Westlake Drive. Homes along Westlake Drive often are privately gated and can have views of the lake and views of Mount Bonnell, as well as private boat docks. Most are on the main body of Lake Austin, but there are canal-front homes, also. Lots are usually large and deep to allow for waterfront access from back of home to shore. Homes in Lake Shore are definitely into the multi-millions, even for rare “tear-downs” or lots. Residents without waterfront property can enjoy a day at the private West Lake Beach, with swim and play areas.
Davenport West is a small area of homes just west of the Pennybacker Bridge and off of Bunny Run that is near Lake Austin and in the Eanes district. Look one street over to Rivercrest Drive in the Rivercrest neighborhood for homes that are directly on the waterfront, with boat decks and lake views.
In Rob Roy, homes along Pascal Lane will be closest to Lake Austin.
